In our age of advanced synthetics and their complex blends we all sometimes long to put on a dress made of purely natural fabric. Silk, cotton, wool… Just as hundreds and thousands years ago, we love them for a number of their outstanding properties, which are quite difficult to replicate artificially. Linen is surely one of those Old but Gold organic fabrics that people have been using since ancient times. Let’s find out what is so remarkable about it and what types of this fabric you can buy at TISSURA Online Fabric Shop.
The valuable qualities of European linen
As we have said, linen is natural. It is obtained from flax that grows extensively in many Western European countries, especially in Northern Ireland. Irish linen is widely regarded as a synonym of perfect quality and is used by prominent fabric manufacturers. Flax fibres are highly valued by many people for such great qualities as cool handle, perfect absorption, non-allerginicity as well as for their antibacterial and antimycotic properties. Moreover, even low blends of Irish linen feature them!
The flax from Normandy is no less precious. It is used by one of our major partners — Thomas Mason, which always seeks the best batches from each crop. This brand constantly introduces top-notch modern production technologies resulting in the utmost quality of one of the world’s finest linens.
Swiss linens at TISSURA are represented by such renowned brands as Jakob Schlaepfer, Forster Rohner and Hausammann. These companies produce taffeta, numerous appliqués and blends with cotton fibres, while the first two are also famous for embroidered melange. All of them are the real masterpieces that inspire creativity in fashion. Moreover, these manufacturers utilize a unique technique of automated embroidery that prevents shrinkage. Our clients love Swiss shirting and dressing linens for their increased water vapour permeability, light weight and exquisite texture. These specific qualities go in hand with resistance to wear and abrasion, hypoallergenicity and perfect antistatic qualities.
Austrian linen from HOH can be compared with best silks — so thin and exquisite it is. Its advanced machinery, talented designers and a large archive enables this company to decorate their fabrics with classy intricate embroidery. Floral lace appliqués on linen and hand-cut fabrics from HOH are the go-to options for your summer dresses, skirts or jackets. Linen from Austria regularly enjoys the highest popularity amongst the world’s most famous couturiers.
It is also necessary to mention Italian printed linen imbued with the elegance of Paisley or floral patterns. It comprises fabrics with water-repellent coating, linen with a glossy finish and solid colour linen.
Men can always find linens from Hausammann for shirts and trousers. If you need a stylish and high quality jacket — go for our linens from Scabal!

However, if you need a light business suit, both men and women will definitely like our assortment of striped and checkered linens.
